Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex 170L PC Desktop ?

Location of USB Root Hub

\015 When plugging in an External Hard Drive on the lower front USB port, a message says "This USB device can perform faster if you connect it to a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port". When I click on those available, it shows I have a USB Root Hub with 8 hi-speed ports. Where are they?\015

Answers :

Hi dottyo,

Generally the front USB ports on a computer are USB version 1.1, good for USB keyboard and mouse or printer.

But, almost always the USB ports on the back of the pc are USB version 2.0 which is what you are looking for. Try any ports on the back of the pc case.

Hope that helps!
